ZTE has launched new Nubia series smartphones, the Nubia Z9 Max and Nubia Z9 Mini, in China.

Both handsets pack a 16MP shooter with support for 4K video recording. The 8MP front-facing camera is all set and ready to go for the ultimate selfies. Android Lollipop 5.0.2 comes pre-installed.
The ZTE Nubia Z9 Max packs the ubiquitous Snapdragon 810 chipset with all the good and bad implications that carries. It’s joined by 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. Battery capacity is 2,900mAh, and the whole package measures 154.8×76.6×7.9mm and weighs 165g.
The midrange Nubia Z9 mini is equipped with Snapdragon 615 and 2GB of RAM while storage is again 16GB complemented by a microSD slot. The same capacity cell is fitted in the decidedly more compact 141.3×69.8×8.2mm body, which tips the scales at 147g.
The Z9 mini is capped at 1080p.
The smartphones sport a premium build with a metal frame all around. The Nubia Z9 Max has an all-glass back which is not replaceable. Both devices come with a comprehensive network support, including LTE capability.
